Who Am I?

The Instigator

Doan Winkel here. I am an entrepreneur at Legacy Out Loud and an educator at Illinois State University  My students create and own their learning experiences. My classroom is an entrepreneurial experiment each and every semester.

I have two main goals in life:

  1. To fix our broken education system by giving students a voice and control (see my TEDx talk on this here).
  2. To motivate younger generations to tackle their dreams through creating their own careers.

You will find two things here:

  1. A real-time glimpse of my innovative and risky approach to teaching entrepreneurship to college students
  2. My random musings about education and learning, and about entrepreneurship and startups

I Would Be Honored If You Followed My Crazy Journey and Shared Your Feedback
